The History of Saudi Arabia reveals how Religion in Saudi Arabia has shaped the Customs and Traditions in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is a religious hub because of the sacred pilgrimages of Mecca and Medina. A Muslim devotee has to follow the Five Pillars of Islam. First he should believe that there 'is no god but a God, and Mohammed is the Messenger of God'. This is also the motto of the Saudi Arabians. Praying five times a day facing Mecca is the second tenet. Giving of alms, that is, zakkat, is another rule. During the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, that is, the Ramadan, the followers of Islam are to observe a fast. Finally each member of the Muslim community must undertake a pilgrimage to Mecca ( hajj) at least once in their lifetime.
